Photographer Simen Johan explores uneasy connections between Humans and Animals

 

Simen Johan: Until the Kingdom Comes Opens in Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery
February 20th, 2011

Nashville, TN – The Frist Center’s Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery will feature Simen Johan: Until the Kingdom Comes, comprising nine large-scale digital photographs and three sculptures. The exhibition opens February 20th, 2011, and will remain on view through May 29th, 2011.

Often showing wild animals in natural settings, Johan’s photographs may seem like National Geographic idylls writ gloriously large. Yet while appearing to be straightforward documents of nature, the works have an underlying allegorical content. The majestic creatures seem to occupy the titular “kingdom,” an ideal place where desires will be fulfilled and life’s dilemmas resolved. But contained within each image are imperfections that bring this utopic implication back to reality. «Read the rest of this article»

Mayor McMillan seeks Attorney General’s opinion on Piper hiring by CDE

 

City of ClarksvilleMayor Kim McMillan has sent a letter to the local legislative delegation, requesting that they seek an opinion from the state Attorney General about the Power Board’s recent hiring of former Clarksville Mayor Johnny Piper as superintendent of Clarksville Department of Electricity.
